Zionist Ideologue Ron Lauder Defends the Indefensible

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.orgHome – Stephen Lendman)

Billionaire Lauder heads the World Jewish Congress (WJC), one of 52 major US Zionist organizations, one-sidedly supporting Israel – ignoring its highest of high crimes.

In am shamefully published NYT op-ed, he defended Israel’s apartheid Nation-State Law, saying it “correctly reaffirms that Israel is a Jewish state,” adding it “damages the sense of equality” for its non-Jewish citizens.

False! It destroys them in Israeli Basic Law, its equivalent of constitutional law, especially for Palestinians, officially annulling their fundamental rights.

Lauder ignored Israel’s longstanding undeclared war on Palestinians, notably its ruthlessness against besieged Gazans, murdering them in cold blood.

He said nothing about multiple daily IDF incursions throughout West Bank Palestinian communities, storming homes pre-dawn, lawlessly arresting residents, detaining them as political prisoners, traumatizing families.

According to Lauder, “the democratic and egalitarian dimensions of the Jewish democratic state are being tested,” adding:

“Israel is a miracle. The Jews of the diaspora look up to Israel, admire its astonishing achievements and view it as their second home.”

Ziofascist Israeli governance is more hypocrisy than democracy, non-Jews denied equal rights from inception.

No sense of egalitarianism exists, no rule of, by and for all Israeli citizens equitably, illegally occupied Palestinians treated as viciously as Hitler mistreated Jews.

Israel is no “miracle.” World Jewry increasingly opposes its ruthlessness. Claiming diaspora Jews “look up to Israel…as their second home” is utter nonsense.

So is claiming “(f)or 4,000 years, the Jewish people were seen as the world’s moral compass” – what disgraceful rubbish!

Lauder turned truth on its head adding “(t)he Zionist movement has been unwaveringly democratic from its very start” – a bald-faced lie!

He lied claiming “its flag (stands for) liberty, equality and human rights for all.” 

He lied saying “when Israel was founded, it immediately became the first and only democracy in the Middle East.”

From inception, nothing about Israel was democratic, just the opposite. Its governance today is Ziofascist. 

Its so-called declaration of independence affirmation of “complete equality of social and political rights to all its inhabitants irrespective of religion, race or sex” was hollow from inception. Under the Netanyahu regime, it’s laughable.

The “Zionist ethos (and) Israeli spirit” Lauder supports threaten world peace and stability in cahoots with Washington, its main benefactor.

Zionism, a malignant destructive ideology, isn’t Judaism, a religion. Growing numbers of world Jews reject the menace it represents.

“I have always stood by Israel and I always will,” Lauder bellowed, supporting wrong over right, instead of the other way around responsibly.

Backing Ziofascist ideologues running Israel endorses their state terror – their high crimes of war and against humanity, demanding universal condemnation and accountability.
